    I beg your pardon but I ALWAYS refer to him as my white president...no...wait...I dont refer to his color at all...
    And where are all these people that are saying (and I quote) "Kill Obama the nigger"???? Who the hell do you hang out with, man??? Seriously!

    I think Halle Berry has some issues. If I'm not mistaken, I think this isn't the first time she's made a comment that could be construed as, um, "racially controversial".

    You are correct. Girl does have issues and I hope she gets the help she needs.

    It is not just race as she has said some out there stuff on several things and some are saying that this may be the straw that breaks her back in reguards to her sometimes strange ideas she tries to keep on the downlow. Guess we will see.

    So did you feel it racist?

    OK...so wait a second...why doesnt the reverse apply? Why isnt it seen that if you have even a drop of white blood you are white? (I know I know...I think the one drop idea is a stupid POV myslef...Im not suggesting it SHOULD be the case)
